Mikki G Restaurant (Formerly Home's Cafe) | D'piazza, Bayan Lepas

After Green Island western food restaurant, there is another newly open western food restaurant in Bayan Lepas area. It was formerly known as Home's Cafe, and now change to Mikki G. We managed to visit this place on last Friday, second day of the opening. 10% discount on all foods and it is applicable until end of April 2013. Heard that the chef is from Legend hotel in KL. The interior of the restaurant remained the same as previous and worker's uniform is still black in colour. Menu wise, they serve more on western food, including chicken chop, chicken cordon bleu, roast rosemary chicken, spegetti and etc. Lamb shrank is popular according to my colleague. Besides, the old menu "Local Delight" from Home's Cafe are still available.

 

Double Electric Breast Pump | Lacte Duet

I wish to share something about my electric breast pump that has been used for almost a year. I bought this breast pump when my baby was about 4 months old, after used Medela Swing for about 2-3 months. Medela Swing is single pump, which took me about 1 hour to clear both sides, Imagine if you need 2 to 3 sessions per day during working hour, how much time you left to do your work? And it was second hand pump get from my sis in law, I am not sure it was due to old pump or what, the Medela Swing can't really empty my breast. Till one day when I was frustrated, I decided to invest on new pump. With some survey, I decided to get in this Lacte Duet Double Electric Breast Pump. It was RM399 the time I bought, I told myself if I able to feed baby with my breast milk until she is one year old, I will only need around RM50 per month (start count from 5 months old), and all of us knew breast milk is much safer and healthier compare to formula. Autumnz milk storage bag to store my milk With this new pump, I managed to empty my breast, hence I get more milk. This pump comes with double motor where user can adjust both sides with different power level. With this feature, in case of one motor break down , you can still use another side. It is also more quiet compare with M.Swing and some other top brand model. Another thing that I like about this pump is you can use it with power bank, it is especially helpful where you can pump at anywhere even though without power supply. My breast pump bag with two compartments - FAME Breastpump Knapsack/Backpack (L) As the original bottles that came with the set have wider opening, the pump also came with converter where you can pump directly into your Bumblebee/Autumnz or whatever bottles that has smaller opening. It is convenient as you do not need to wash extra bottle after pump, just pump inside your storage bottles. The only thing that I am not happy with this pump is it contains many parts and you will need more time in washing the parts. I have this in my mind: "I will get in Freemie to use with this pump for my next baby", as I feel Freemie is easier to wash, and yes, this pump can use with Freemie. Besides this I would say it is a good pump. To make my pumping more comfortable, I use it with handsfree bra, it is much more convenient and can reduce shoulder pain as you no need to bend your head down by always looking at your bottles. With handsfree bra, you can work while pumping as your hands will be free at the time you pump. My day will be full of joy and satisfaction when I get this amount in one pumping session! I wish all mothers happy pumping and enjoy your breast feeeding journey!

 

Mix Sauce Pan Fried Chicken Wings Recipe

This mix sauce pan fried chicken wing is one of my favourite dish. Camus likes to cook this dish as it is easy to prepare and delicious. The first time he cooked this dish is during his visit to Japan on few years ago. Camus cooked for me during weekday when I was working in Japan. Until today, the sweet memory is still fresh in my mind. I still remember he cooked 5 chicken wings (mini drumstick part) at that time, he ate two and I ate three of them. This is how he treats me, always give the best for me. When return to Malaysia, he will still cook this delicious dish for me and at the same time, I learn the recipe from him. This is how he cooked the mix sauce pan fried chicken wing.

I saw a very cute mini red apple when I am shopping in OIOI shopping complex last weekend. I was looking for various kind of fruits at that time and unexpectedly I saw those mini apples. I was so excited and thinking to buy it but at the end I walked back with empty hands as we were too hungry and rushing for dinner.

I was regretted for not buying the mini apples and keep thinking on the cute apple for few days. Frown Yesterday after work, on the way back home, we stopped by a shop to buy fruit. Out of expectation, we saw the cute apple again. Without further consideration, we walked to the counter with a pack of mini apple. Yee hee.. A pack of 14 apples cost 298yen, which is about RM11.

 

To me, the reason I bought the apple is because they are cute, but in fact I don't really like apple. The BIG red apples in Japan have never attract my attention but I just love those cute mini apples.

The most excited thing after bought the apples was the photo session, I managed to capture the cute mini apples with my camera. Aren't they cute?

Aroma: very light.
Taste: sweet and slightly sour.
Texture: mealy

Other than the size, there is nothing special about the applesTongue out. I believed it is more suitable to use them to make apple pie, tart or jam due to the mealy texture. Anyway, I just like it. Hehe Kiss

I like eating small apples. Just at times when I don't feel like eating the big apples, I know I can finish this size of apple.
